Residential Life’s residence halls are organized as residential colleges, the Honors House, themed housing, and traditional halls. Also offered are upper-class student apartments and family and graduate student housing options. With so many options, there’s something for everyone:
Residential colleges enjoy all the same amenities and features of traditional residence halls, but they also maximize the on-campus living experience by creating smaller communities and fostering greater student–faculty interaction beyond the classroom. Residential colleges are for first-year students, and are either major-specific or interest-based and open to all majors.
Laville Honors House
East and West Laville Halls are home to the Laville Honors House, which provides both a residence and a academically-focused collegiate atmosphere – like a residential college – to freshmen in the Honors College as well as upper class Honors students who choose to reside there. In the Laville Honors House, students live with a diverse peer group, participate in social, academic, and service activities, and interact with faculty outside of the classroom.
Traditional housing options at LSU simply mean the residence hall, or part of the hall, is open to all years of students and all majors. (Throughout the summer, traditional space may become available in additional halls not listed here.)
There are two apartment complexes on campus for second-year students and above:
Sophomore Themed Housing
Themed housing is similar to a residential college, but on a smaller scale. Participants live within a traditional hall, take one class with their cohort, and participate in activities together. Two themed housing options are available for sophomores:
We know not all Tigers are coming straight from high school. Family & Graduate housing options are available to full-time LSU students 21 years or older, graduate students, married students, post-doctoral students, or single parents.
If you require accommodations for a disability, you must register with the Office of Disability Services, who will communicate any housing requirements necessary to our office so we can make appropriate accommodations for you. Contact the Office of Disability Services at 225-578-5919.
Diversity in all its forms is central to a healthy and dynamic community, and we are committed to working with all students to ensure each individual who desires the on-campus experience can live on campus in a safe, comfortable environment. Please contact Renee Richard-Gonce to learn more.
